Chiefs Striker Out To Fix Sundowns' Heartbreak

Five years ago, Lazarous Kambole’s CAF Champions dreams were shattered by Mamelodi Sundowns – but he is out to rectify that when Kaizer Chiefs take on Wydad Casablanca on this Saturday.

Kambole was part of the Zesco United side that suffered a 3-2 defeat to Sundowns in the 2016 semi-final, a competition that the Brazilians went on to win under coach Pitso Mosimane.

Now, the Zambian forward finds himself in the semi-final once again, this time with Amakhosi, who he joined two seasons ago, although he is hoping to go one better than he did with Zesco.

“It’s going to be nice to go beyond the semi-finals, this has been my breach, I lost in the semi-finals in 2016. So, here is another opportunity to go all the way to the final and win the competition,” Kambole told Chiefs’ website ahead of the game.

Although he has been a bit-part player for Amakhosi this season featuring predominantly off the bench, Kambole has revealed that he is ready to do the job, should coaches Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard be in need of his services.

"I am confident and I feel great, I am ready to give everything for the team and the badge. I just can’t wait to go there and fight and get a good result,” he added.

Kambole is confident that a team of Chiefs’ calibre can go all the way and lift the trophy if they manage to get past a tricky Wydad outfit.

"This is the league of Champions – if you want to be counted amongst the best, you must beat the champions. Chiefs is a big club and even in the CAF Champions League we are expected to win the trophy. That is pressure on its own we just have to go all out and win the competition,” he concluded.
